    MLB - 162 games. You can win the World Series with 60+ losses!

    Baseball for sure ! Worst beats the best lots of time. Worst beating the best in the NFL doesn't happen all that often.

    The fact that baseball doesn't allow for anything close to seventh and eighth seeds to even make the playoffs should tell you something

    Very true. You will never see a baseball team go 162-0 and lose the World Series

    it happens in all sports from the ultimate team sports like soccer, to the ultimate individual sports like tennis. i would say the most upsets occur in baseball and tennis, but then again those sports also have the highest volumes of games.

    MLB is the obvious answer, but I see alot of upsets in College Basketball also. What about sports that seem to never have upsets?? I don't follow it, but it seems like there's hardly ever a stunner in the Premier League. UFC Favs seem to win in overwhelming fashion also.

    Guys this is an easy question... MLB with NHL close behind. NBA and NFL way in the rearview mirror. You can tell this just from being a sports fan and watching.

    What makes this even easier is why are sports bettors, the numbers are right there in front of you. You want see -2000 lines in NHL or MLB. Highest is usually -300ish. -400+ lines are commonplace in NFL and NBA. If you really think any given sunday a big NFL underdog has a decent shot. Just bet into those huge lines and make a fortune.

    I almost agree but I'd reverse it with MLB as a close second because pitching has so much to do with it while hockey really can happen on any given night

    MLB. Baseball has higher variance than most other team sports.

    MLB.
    Having said that, we are talking about professionals here.
    The best of the best, any time a team of professionals are playing another team of professionals, anything can happen and usualy does.
    Doesn't matter if one teams professionals are better than the other teams professionals, if the lesser talented professionals all play up to their professional talent at the same time, the end result is an upset win.

    (now, without counting, tell me how many times the word professional appears in this post, win valuable prizes)
